Though the wintry wind and rain continues, our spirits aren’t dampened because we’ve been cooking up a storm! Lewisham Council is currently hosting free cooking classes that have a Love Food Hate Waste theme, teaching people how to be imaginative with food that needs using up and reducing food waste. We’re hosting 8 classes for Goldsmiths University especially tailored for students who are eating up these classes like hot cakes! We’ve also arranged classes in several primary schools and have one open to the public – see below!

Do you want to feel more confident with cooking, use up left overs without the need for a recipe, make cooking easier, reduce the amount of food you throw away and save on your food bills and time?

Students learn how to make pastry which can be made into a quiche or a pie.

Lewisham Council are hosting a professional cook to hold a FREE cooking workshop for Lewisham Residents at the Downham Library. The class is a once off 2 hour session.

This class is for anyone who buys and prepares their own or family’s food and feels they could

  • Be more confident with their cooking skills
  • Save money by storing food correctly, and knowing what to do with it
  • Use up left over’s in an imaginative easy way
  • Spend less time on cooking or wondering what to cook
  • Reduce food waste, help the environment and help your pocket
These are some of the things that you can learn to make at the cooking classes.

Monica is a fabulous professional cook/trainer who has very successfully held classes in many venues all over the UK and enthusiastically teaches how easy it is to reduce food waste, make simple meals from left-overs, how to store foods you’ve made too much of and how to keep fruit and veg last up to 10 days longer than what most people have been able to manage, ultimately saving money, time and food waste.
